Cognizant named Leader in Magic Quadrant for app testing

01 Feb 2019

Cognizant has been named a Leader in the Gartner ‘Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services, Worldwide’ report. 

In addition, Cognizant scored highest in Digital Business Assurance and Test Advisory Use Cases in Gartner's companion report, "Critical Capabilities for Application Testing Services, Worldwide."

For the ‘Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services, Worldwide’ report, Gartner evaluated 20 application testing service providers on their completeness of vision and ability to execute across a variety of criteria. 

Leaders are defined by Gartner as "performing well today, gaining traction and mind share in the market; they have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market. 

Leaders generally have a global client base; a track record of complex, global engagements that support business transformation; and well-balanced business, process and industry consulting, implementation and service management capabilities that are supported by rigorous tools and methodologies."

As enterprises embrace digital, they need a modern approach to quality assurance (QA). Cognizant's industry depth and technology expertise helps deliver automated and intelligent QA for improved quality, and faster business and technology change.

"As digital transforms industries in unique ways, our clients need industry aligned digital assurance to succeed," says Cognizant senior vice president and head of global growth markets, quality engineering and assurance Andreas Golze. 

"An example of our leadership is our retail lab that delivers immersive digital assurance and accelerates the pace of innovation. To us, being named a Leader by Gartner underscores our ability to deliver testing services that help build powerful, digital-ready IT backbones that drive efficiency and effectiveness for our clients."

The ‘Critical Capabilities for Application Testing Services, Worldwide’ report is a companion to the ‘Magic Quadrant for Application Testing Services, Worldwide’ report. 

Cognizant scored highest for the Test Advisory Use Case, which helps clients in setting up and controlling requirements management (including static reviews), test management, test planning, test process, and the test tools - what to test and how to test, and for the Digital Business Assurance Use Case, which focused on verifying and validating digital business processes composed of cloud applications and digital technologies like RPA and IoT.
